    Pros

    Great working environment.The biggest telecommunications company in the country. Possess the best technology in the sector. Very competitive.

    Cons

    Not quite good managing the clients base. Problems with billing. Not so flexible with the competitors. Good in acquiring new client, but not so in keeping the old ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible. Provide more benefits for existing clients. Try to escape totally from the previous bad reputation.

    Former Employee - Technician in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at Bell Canada

    Pros

    Relations with other employees and senior staff tends to be very good. The slight advantages are a light perk.

    Cons

    The management in no way shape or form there to support their staff. Its only a politics game of who can kiss the behinds better while treating their teams like peons. No accountability in respect to upper management surveillance over their immediate managers. Stupid arrangement of blocking transfer to other departments when you actually have more\better experience to offer in other areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pressuring employees to do more under already difficult conditions.

    Pros

    There are no foreseen pros

    Cons

    2 years of wait for health insurance.
    High possibility of temporary indefinite categorization for more than 20 years of service
    Managers using underhanded tactics to pressure you constantly
    Purposefully changing work schedule to make it impossible to take on other work to fill the reduced hours that they emplace on you.
    High stress
    Placed in the position to absorb all other departments mistakes and are reprimanded if you disagree

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the job and stop pressuring needlessly for people who are already highly trained.
